My roommate and I had a slow start to the day as the stay in Amsterdam wasan unescorted part of our tour. We felt like it was time for a day that didn't have us rushing around. The main highlight of the day besides taking the tram around was the Vincent Van Gogh museum. I am a big Vincent Van Gogh fan so it was nice to see so many of his paintings up close and personal. Some of the paintings took my breath away because of their beauty.
Our afternoon involved eating lunch outside of a restaurant and people watching. We saw an interesting older couple putting down some trash on the ground and running off after putting it down. Perhaps they didn't want to get DNA sprayed. We, also, spent some time wandering around looking at shops before heading back to the hotel for a break before dinner.
Our search at dinner time for hot dogs with curry and french fries with mayo ( a Dutch thing) was an adventure involving missing a tram who didn't let us on and the closure of food truck we had seen early. We finally found a place and then headed back to eat at the canal area behind our hotel. A Dutch man on his house boat seemed interested and asked us if it was good. It was good!
Off to bed now. More adventures later.
